“There is area for it, but we have so several items to do that we’re now dedicated to. Getting a new product assortment out there is the priority,” said Matt Windle, Government Director of Sports Motor vehicle Engineering for Lotus. This is probably a sensible conclusion, as a limited version product wouldn’t provide as substantially earnings to a little firm like Lotus.

The 3-Eleven replaced the two-Eleven and is however, to this day, just one of the coolest autos Lotus at any time made. It was powered by a 3.five-liter Toyota 2GR-FE V6 motor with a supercharger, which made 410 hp in street-heading guise and 460 hp in the race motor vehicle. Because it weighed just two,039 kilos (in the street-heading edition), the 3-Eleven could strike 60 mph in 3.3 seconds or just two.nine seconds in the lighter racing guise.
